Welcome to the Department of Music!

Music – that reverberant sounding stuff that energizes, soothes, entertains, shapes identities, and makes us dream – is something you can study at the U of A in its infinite shapes. We offer instruction in performance, composition and courses exploring music’s social, cultural and sounding realities, which will enrich any degree and career dream you have. Whether you want to make music your profession, or you are just curious about how music functions, communicates emotions, heals, and much more, you are in the right place.
